Hospitals across Lincolnshire will be renewing their commitment to recognising the invaluable contribution of carers as part of a national awareness week.
This year’s Carers Week runs from Monday 11 June, and provides an opportunity to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face, and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.
